Sometimes an adult will come in to improve the appearance of their smile; in other instances a dentist will request that their patient see us in order to align teeth for better brushing/flossing/oral health, stop wearing down their front teeth or to improve the chances of a crown/veneer lasting longer if the bite is corrected first.
Drs. Gorton and Schmohl are well aware of the differences between adults and children with regards to recession, bone levels, speed of tooth movement, tooth grinding, crowns, bridges, root canals, implants, etc and how to incorporate these into the treatment plan.
Not every adult should pursue orthodontic treatment, but you never know until you ask! If you have noticed any shifting or have any concerns about the position of your teeth please contact us to schedule a complimentary consultation to get a professional opinion.
